I understand, but there are only so many franchise guys available in the whole league. Half the teams don't have even one. Can you really pass up the chance to get one for the sake of 3 or 4 months of puffing up your chest? Because those players obviously think they are "too good" to sign here once they blow up. A different story when you have been drafting well like OKC.
I hate to reach into hockey, but how would Patrick Kane or Jonhnathan Toews look on the Leafs right now?
